My last visit to Cagayan de Oro was in the late eighties when I was still working for the Philippine Convention and Visitors Corporation (PCVC) -- the marketing arm of the Department of Tourism. I was with Joji Gregorio, presently finance manager of PCVC.
I can't believe that it was almost twenty years ago!
Anyway, my May 16-17 familiarization trip to Mapawa Nature Park is related to its thrust to reposition itself into a full-blown adventure and ecotourism destination.
Mapawa is managed by the Pelaez family.
Expect some pics when I get back.
